An Interactive "Starry Night"

Greek multimedia artist is known for his applications of a software called OpenFrameworks, which enables the manipulation and animation of images. 

And for his latest application/art piece, he applied the technology to Vincent Van Gogh's classic "Starry Night".

In Vrellis' demonstration, "Starry Night" is turned into 80,000 particles moving around 30 frames per second on a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution screen, which is a lot of numbers and tech talk, so you might have to see the video after the jump to believe him.
